August 2010

Hey sports fans...welcome to the game that is my life lol. So it has been a while since I posted, I know shame on me. Life has definitely been a roller coaster ride of emotions. I was on the road for 5 weeks, a 41 hour greyhound ride to CA for 2 weeks of ministry, 9 hours on another greyhound to Vegas, 2 weeks in Vegas to visit family and to get my daughter who had been there for bible camp and a church internship. I was also in Vegas to help my mom try to save her condo, but a couple of days before I was supposed to go home, my step father passed away. It was then a frantic race to try and raise money to bury him because he didn't have life insurance, fix his old car in order to drive to Chicago, help my mom with all the arrangements and then drive back home to Texas...all of this while still in school and trying to make sure my sons were taken care of back home because my husband was on a field assignment with his military unit. Needless to say STRESSFUL!!!! The good news?? I still managed to lose weight, in fact I have officially become a runner. No, you won't see me in any marathons anytime soon, but I'm a runner just the same.

Down to the nitty gritty...
I now weigh in at 185 pounds and my measurements are 38-39-40, but I've gained a whole lot of muscle, my cellulite has literally disappeared and my skin is so smooth I can't remember when it looked so good. I eat more mixed raw vegetables than a wild rabbit and drink enough water to drown a fish lol. I run for 25-35 minutes a day and walk at a fast pace for a remainder of 20-15 minutes. I do light weights to tone and strengthen. I have a lot going on, but I'm doing the dang thing and plan on being at my goal weight by mid October. Until then.

God Bless!
P.S. That's a total of 51 pounds and over 26 inches total. ;-)
